Echo Glen-Housing Unit: Acute Mental Health Unit

The Echo Glen Children's Center is the only state institution for female youth who have been convicted of a felony.

This project creates an acute mental health unit for female youth, which will include light, gender responsive renovations to Cottage 12 and construction of a cover for a sports court to support outdoor activities throughout the year. In addition, reappropriation funding from the Department of Social and Health Services is transferred as a new appropriation to complete work initiated in the 2017-19 biennium.

Green Hill School-Recreation Building: Replacement

30003237

The outdated configuration of the Recreation Building at Green Hill School in Chehalis makes it difficult for staff to effectively supervise male juvenile offenders, which includes older, high-need males. This sometimes requires scheduling in separate groups for recreational activities. This project will construct a modern Recreation Building that will provide dynamic, therapeutic and physical exercise areas so that multiple groups can recreate at a time. The new facility will help support Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards and be a code and ADA-compliant facility. In addition, reappropriation funding from the Department of Social and Health services is transferred as a new appropriation to complete work initiated in the 2017-19 biennium.

Echo Glen Children's Center: Academic School

The existing school buildings at Echo Glen Children's Center were built in 1967 and do not support a modern educational environment. Many youthful offenders have mental health or substance use disorders, which may be benefitted by a modern classroom environment. This project will perform a predesign and design on the academic school, which will include an assessment of whether it requires renovation, remodel or replacement.
